Should I continue working from home?

Posted on August 31, 2021 at 3:04 pm

During the height of the pandemic many people were faced with the prospect of working from home and lots of employees embraced this and actually preferred this way of working rather than going back to the daily commute into the office. Thanks to the internet this is now a possibility for many people but is it as good as it seems?

Working from home may sound like a good idea but you will need to be disciplined as there will be lots of distractions to contend with such as family restrictions, household tasks to be done and tea and coffee readily available for numerous breaks throughout the day. Being a successful home worker means being highly self-motivated, especially if you’re working freelance.

However, as you are in direct control of the work you take on and which hours you work this can fit in better with other responsibilities you may have such as taking and collecting children from school.

If you find self- motivation an issue then an employed role may be a better option for you.

Working from home may involve taking telephone calls which can be difficult if there are young children in the background so it is better if there is a room or area that can be used for this purpose.
